Last week, a Cook County jury convicted 33-year-old John Haley of involuntary manslaughter for Du Doan’s death. Doan is the 62-year-old Vietnamese man who was shoved into Lake Michigan and drowned to death in Chicago two years ago. Prosecutors implored jurors to convict Haley of murder, saying they shouldn’t buy his excuse that when he pushed Doan into the water, he did it for a joke and didn’t know the man could not swim. But on late Oct. 23, the jury announced a guilty verdict for involuntary manslaughter. Haley faces a sentence of 2 to 5 years in prison, though the range could be extended to up to 10 years because he has a previous drug conviction.
